  • KOOSA Kids Breakfast Clubs

Kick starting your children’s school day, every school morning.



KOOSA Kids operate Breakfast Clubs on behalf of schools across Berkshire, Hampshire, Richmond & Surrey, every school morning. KOOSA Kids have been running Ofsted registered holiday clubs, after school clubs and breakfast clubs for over 15 years and are proud have achieved more Ofsted Outstanding ratings than any comparable out of school childcare provider!

The focus for our Breakfast Clubs is to provide a calm, welcoming and relaxing environment for your children ready for their busy day ahead. Times vary dependent on the school the club is based in, but each breakfast club usually runs for at least 45 minutes and finishes at school start time. 

A healthy and nutritious breakfast is served every morning (fruit, toast, cereals, fruit drinks, water) and the children are able to choose from a selection of quiet games and activities including art tables, board games, construction games, books and many more. Breakfast is on offer for the first 20 minutes of the session. At the end of the session, children are safely escorted to a pre-agreed location, dependent on the requirements of the school.

KOOSA Kids also run After School Clubs and Holiday Clubs across the same regions. 

Securing New Spaces at KOOSA Kids Breakfast Clubs

Sessions for KOOSA Kids breakfast clubs and/or after school clubs can be booked on an ad hoc basis, as and when you need them. Breakfast Club sessions can be booked by 1pm and After School Club sessions can be booked by 6pm the working day before you need them, subject to availability. If you require childcare on a more permanent basis, we can contract the days you require through a Permanent Places Agreement, guaranteeing your sessions on an ongoing basis.

KOOSA Kids Breakfast Clubs provide local working parents with safe, reliable and fun before school childcare.

From September 2021, KOOSA Kids breakfast clubs and after school clubs will continue to operate with the COVID-19 Protective Measures as set out by the Department for Education. This will include enhanced cleaning protocols, a focus on ventilation, as well as encouraging good hand hygiene for staff and children, promoting the 'Catch It, Bin It, Kill It' guidance and providing CO2 monitors to all state-funded education settings to monitor ventilation. 

KOOSA Kids take the health and wellbeing of the children in our care, and that of our staff, extremely seriously. All our clubs will follow the clear & workable sector-specific guidance provided by the Department for Education to continue operating in a safe & Covid-Secure way. 

Below you will find some of the protective measures that will be in place across all our clubs from September:

  • We have introduced greatly enhanced daily cleaning routines, including regular cleaning of frequently touched surfaces.
  • We will be promoting good hygiene practices with children and staff to include frequent hand washing and adopting the 'catch it, bin it, kill it' approach.
  • The activities and resources provided will be adapted for hygiene reasons and ease of cleaning.
  • Where the weather allows, staff and children will spend as much time outside as possible.
  • CO2 monitors will be provided to all state-funded education settings and Out of School Clubs from September 2021, so staff can quickly identify where ventilation needs to be improved. KOOSA Kids track CO2 levels and take appropriate action when required.

We will be returning to our usual (pre-COVID) collection process from September 2021, meaning parents can drop off their child at a time that suits them (see individual club pages for opening times for your specific breakfast club). Please note breakfast is served for the first 20 minutes only.

As KOOSA Kids Ltd is an Ofsted Registered childcare provider, you may be able to subsidise the cost of childcare through the following government schemes, if you are eligible: 

Working Tax Credit - Nine out of ten families could save up to 80% of childcare costs through Working Tax Credit. For more information call 0845 300 3900 or visit https://www.gov.uk/help-with-childcare-costs/approved-childcare.

The Money Saving Expert website has a very user friendly section on their website regarding ways to pay for childcare, which includes a tax credit eligibility calculator https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/family/childcare-costs

Childcare Vouchers - Childcare Vouchers allow employers to help their employees with the cost of childcare. Childcare Vouchers are exempt from National Insurance Contributions (NICs) and Income Tax for employees up to the value of £55 per week, which can mean savings of over £2000 a year for a couple who are both working. All employers are able to run a childcare voucher scheme and employers make considerable savings too. Why not ask your employer if they currently run or would be prepared to run a childcare voucher scheme. Remember KOOSA Kids also offer third child goes free and 8% weekly booking discounts.

There are always a minimum of two members of staff on duty at each KOOSA Kids, at all times. The legal Ofsted requirement for adult:children ratios are 1:30, however, we always endeavour to work to a ratio of 1:8 for children aged four to seven years and a maximum of 1:16 for children aged eight and over. We do not allow any care that we provide to children aged eight to 13 years to adversely affect the care provided for children less than eight years of age. This might result in the activity programme being tailored toward the EYFS curriculum where necessary.

We know that great staff make for a great club. All of our coaches possess the mixture of experience, skill and personality necessary to get the most from the children, whilst ensuring all the activities are delivered in a safe and organised manner.

All KOOSA Kids coaches are cleared with the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) and trained in safeguarding and child protection, activity delivery, behaviour management and health & safety. There will always be at least one Paediatric First Aid trained person at each club.

Although there is no legal requirement to ensure staff are qualified, KOOSA Kids believe formal qualifications play an important part in ensuring the care offered is of the highest quality as well assisting our employees Continued Professional Development.

At each KOOSA Kids club, the Regional Coordinator will always be qualified to a minimum of Level 3 in Playwork or equivalent. We endeavour to ensure that at least one other member of staff at each club holds a Level 3 in Playwork or equivalent, with the aim for 50% of the remaining staff at each club to be qualified to Level 2 in Playwork or equivalent.

KOOSA Kids are only able to accept and administer prescribed medication. If your child is likely to require prescribed medication of any sort throughout the day, please inform the site manager on arrival, who will complete the necessary paperwork. All medication should be handed to the site manager and must be in its original packaging, with the prescription label.

If your child may require emergency medication (e.g. EpiPens or hypodermic injections) whilst they are with us, we may require you to complete specific paperwork prior to your child attending. Please contact KOOSA Kids head office on 01276 21884 to inform us of your child’s requirements and to complete the relevant paperwork before your child attends. 

Please note, if your child carries an EpiPen, you will need to provide KOOSA Kids with two, in-date EpiPens. KOOSA Kids reserve the right to refuse admission if fewer than two EpiPens are supplied, or if the supplied epipens are not in full working order (e.g. cloudy or discoloured liquid). Both EpiPens must be in-date, in their original packaging and be prescribed to your child. It is the parents responsibility to collect the EpiPens from the after school club at the end of each half term. 

We are unable to share medication with your child's school. We recommend asking your child's GP for extra medication so we can store it directly at the after school/breakfast club premises. Please note , we will be unable to accept your child into our care without the required medication being present at the relevant club.

Due to safeguarding procedures, we can not allow the use of electronic devices (phones or hand held games) with a camera. 

Please be aware that if your child attends KOOSA Kids with such a device, they will be asked to keep it in their bag for the entire session. We recommend that children do not bring any expensive belongings with them, as we cannot be held responsible for their damage or loss.

The focus for our Breakfast Clubs is to provide a calm, welcoming and relaxing environment for your children ready for their busy day ahead. Times vary dependent on the school the club is based from, but each breakfast club usually runs for at least 45 minutes and finishes at school start time. 

The children are able to choose from a selection of quiet games and activities including art tables, board games, construction games, books and many more.

We would kindly request to always notify us of your child's absence. Please notify us by email (info@koosakids.co.uk) or by phone (01276 21884) if your child is going to be absent from the after school club, as soon as reasonably possible. 

As an Ofsted registered provider, we have a legal obligation to record absences. If you child is absent and we have not been made aware, it can also greatly inconvenience all the other children attending as we are unable to start the after school club until all children who are booked in are accounted for. 

Please note, notification of absence must come be made to our head office and cannot be passed through our on-site breakfast school club staff or the child's school.

A ‘casual booking’ refers to bookings made as and when you need them and you do not hold a ‘Permanent Places Agreement’ which guarantees your sessions on an ongoing basis.

KOOSA Kids breakfast clubs only run when the schools are open. We do not cover inset days. During every school holiday, we operate Holiday Clubs across Berkshire, Hampshire, Richmond & Surrey. Please see our Holiday Clubs pages to find your local club.

Being fully Ofsted registered, we can accept all types of childcare voucher as full or part payment towards your bookings. Please speak to your employer to find out which childcare voucher company they are registered with.

Most childcare voucher companies allow you to transfer voucher payments to us through their online portals. We recommend this as the easiest way to make your voucher payments.

Please click here for detailed information on how to pay  with childcare vouchers, including a full list of voucher providers we are registered with and their unique payment reference numbers.

If your voucher provider is not listed, please call us on 01276 21884 so we can register with them.

For venue specific transfer arrangements (Walking Bus, On Foot) please see the relevant venue page. Please find below the general procedure for each transfer type: 

Walking Bus – A ‘walking bus’ refers to breakfast clubs where we escort the children from the school where the club is hosted to a nearby school. At least two members of the KOOSA Kids team will walk your children safely to their school and sign them over to a member of school staff at a pre-arranged location within the school (usually the school reception). All children and staff will wear high visibility bibs to ensure they are visible at all times.

On Foot – If the breakfast club is located at your school, your children will either make their own way to their classes at a pre-agreed time or they will be escorted by KOOSA Kids to a pre-arranged location within the school (usually the school reception) and signed over to a member of school staff, depending on the agreed set up with each school.

Some of our breakfast clubs are fully registered with Ofsted, others are school run clubs supported by KOOSA Kids. Although these clubs are not registered with Ofsted, we continue to support the clubs as if they were registered.

For more information, please see our Ofsted page.

Start and finish times for KOOSA Kids breakfast clubs vary per school. Please see the individual venue pages for specific breakfast club start times.

We operate a strict and secure drop off and collection system and it is necessary for a parent/guardian to sign all children in every morning. On your first drop off at the start of each new school term, you will be asked to check a form to ensure we have the correct contact details for you, as well as providing us with consent to administer/arrange medical treatment in case of an emergency.
